INVESTING IN PENNSYLVANIA’S FUTURE

Ben Franklin Technology Partners Launch PA Energy Economy Map, Encourage Participation

Pennsylvania (www.benfranklin.org) – Ben Franklin Technology Partners (BFTP) launched the Pennsylvania Energy Economy Map™, an interactive web-based map detailing Pennsylvania’s energy sector companies, corporations, organizations and academic assets.

“The Pennsylvania Energy Economy Map™ dynamically catalogues Pennsylvania’s robust energy assets in a manner that creates a tool for companies, academics, economic development and public officials to identify opportunities for collaboration and industry growth,” said RoseAnn B. Rosenthal, President & CEO of the Ben Franklin Technology Partners of Southeastern Pennsylvania (BFTP/SEP).

BFTP/SEP piloted the Map for Southeastern Pennsylvania; its development as a statewide resource was a collaborative product of the statewide BFTP network, and it is partially funded by the Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED)’s Alternative Energy Development Program.  Philadelphia-based Azavea, a geographic data and spatial analysis firm, was the technology consultant.

“Pennsylvania is at the center of the energy revolution that is growing our economy and creating jobs for our citizens,” said DCED Secretary C. Alan Walker. “Interactive tools like the PA Energy Economy Map will connect our traditional and alternative energy markets with our colleges and universities to further grow the state’s energy sector.”

“With a diverse energy portfolio ranging from natural gas and coal to wind, solar and geothermal, there is a great opportunity for collaboration that will further strengthen the state’s energy position,” said Governor Corbett’s Energy Executive Patrick Henderson. “The Energy Economy Map pulls together all facets of energy development under a single web-based location.”

The energy community is encouraged to enter new information by selecting “Add Asset” in the upper right corner of the site.  The Map currently includes over 2000 assets in energy sectors including Shale Gas, Renewable Energy, and Production and Distribution.  It includes information on energy related research projects and facilities from 17 universities, colleges and community colleges.  Information can be searched, sorted and viewed using the interactive map and table views.
